Designer solid core doors, all new door hardware, antique pantry door, elegant mid-century light fixtures, and so much more to accent the 1950s architecture. Gorgeous work throughout by a professional designer. Bedrooms, living room, and outdoor dining pergola now have ceiling fans for your additional comfort.
It has 2 bedrooms and one bathroom with a bathtub/shower and stunning chandelier. La Petite Vignes is perfect for 2 but will sleep up to 4. There is a utility surcharge for the 3rd and 4th persons of $25 per person per night.
Wi-fi, smart TV, secure, super clean. Central heating and air-conditioning, covered front porch, new stainless steel appliances, and many special touches.

A few words about our living philosophy: We do want you to know that we try to be very responsible when it comes to protecting ourselves and the earth. Our homes are a "shoes at the door" experience. Therefore we do ask that our guests remove their shoes while in the house. We are HUGE composter/recyclers, do everything we can to save water, and have an eco home thermostat heating/cooling system. Our home thermostat will sense when you are away and shut off. It will then sense when you come into the house and turn back on. It works quickly and "cranking" it up will not make it heat or cool faster. It does not run during the night. We have replaced most of the interior light fixtures with ceiling fans and installed a ceiling fan in the outdoor pergola. We have also installed a locking screen door on the front door to allow for the wonderful Sonoma afternoon breeze to be enjoyed. We only use organic products in the garden. Therefore, our kitchen garden that is available for guest harvest is completely organic fruits, vegetables and herbs.

We are aware of the fragile condition of the planet and we do our part to use organic products, use less of everything, and have as small an impact as we can. We encourage you to do so, as well.
We offer central gas heat and air conditioning, ceiling fans and cool evening breezes in the summertime. The breezes are our personal favorite. The backyard has a pergola with ceiling fan and gorgeous lighting for your outdoor evening dining and lounging pleasure.
To add to our environmental thoughtfulness, we use a smart thermostat. This is preset to reduce use at night and when you leave the house for any extended periods of time. The savings we get from this feature is built into the nightly rate. If you choose to run the A/C or heat beyond those setting, we will need adjust your nightly rate accordingly. This allows everyone to take advantage of those savings if they choose that approach. It also allows you to run the systems to suit your particular needs.

You are within walking distance (5 blocks) to the Historical Sonoma Plaza with all it has to offer. Restaurants with excellent food and a casual flair.
You're in arguably the best wine valley in the world. Visit the wineries and see how they create. Talk with the winemakers. Learn, taste, and buy the best only minutes from the house.
The Plaza is bordered and defined by old buildings that ask you to imagine the past. Shop and explore between meals. Play by day, relax in the evening. Stroll to dinner and back or dine on your own backyard patio with locally grown food. Cook what you love in the comfort of the kitchen with a view. Stare out at the hummingbirds on the patio, past the umbrella and tiered fountain to the small vineyard, kitchen garden and redwood trees and on to the hills and Sonoma Mountain beyond.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Mike and I live in the bay area and have another property for rent near the SFO airport. Mike works for the Presidio Trust in San Francisco and I am a Landscape Designer. I am a true California native who was lucky enough to marry a great mid-western guy from Wisconsin. We love designing and renovating, music concerts, biking and hiking, and cooking together.

Why the Owner Chose Sonoma, CA, USA:
We have always traveled to Sonoma and wanted to own a home here. The day came in December 2013 and we thought it would be an ideal location to live and retire someday. But in the meantime, we put a lot of love into the house and wanted to share it with you!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We fell in love with this house because it screamed 'love me!'. This is a lovely home with good bones and gentle character. We loved the kitchen looking out onto the very large backyard and Sonoma mountain beyond. We saw so much potential and wanted to renovate it back to what it use to be. We respect the age of the house while adding beautiful, quality modern touches.
